Bentley turns on the style for the latest Flying Spur, offers a range of rich upgrades

If you’re fortunate enough to be able to contemplate buying a Bentley Flying Spur, you’re now going to be even more spoilt for choice as the luxury car maker has unveiled a raft of indulgent new options to further individualise your ride as well as soak up your pounds/dollars/cryptocurrency.

Interior options now include a four seat configuration (heated arm-rest, natch), semi-aniline leather (softer than the usual cow hide), hand cross-stitching (which apparently takes 18 hours to do, consuming 115m of thread in the process), veneered inserts for the rear doors and electrically operated picnic tables. 

A raft of new options to further individualise your ride as well as soak up your pounds/dollars/cryptocurrency…

Adorn your ride with new paint colours and wheel options

One can now also specify the aluminium-bedecked centre console in the same Côtes de Genève finish, inspired by the finish used by fine watches, that’s currently used in the Flying Spurs’ two-door cousin, the Continental GT. If that’s considered a bit too gauche, it’s possible to apply lashings of carbon fibre instead. 

Outside, owners can also opt to adorn their ride with three new paint colours – Viridian, Patina and Snow Quartz – or choose from the satin and pearlescent palette already available for the Bentley Mulliner. 

Perfect for cucumber sarnies

Last but not least, Crewe’s finest has added new wheel finish options – gloss black and black/machine-finished – as well as the ability to specify fully chrome-plated radiator grilles. 

Should at least make picking it out in the Harrods car park considerably easier, we imagine…
